18 holes, 6041 yards, par 69
The golf course lies within the boundaries of original Kenmure Estate purchased by Charles Stirling (a West India trader) in 1806. A significant element of policy woodland broad-leafed species oak, ash, beech etc established at that time still remains today. The Bishopbriggs burn which meanders through the course all adds to an enjoyable and challenging golfing experience.
Nestling in 400 acres on the edge of the Kilsyth Hills, only 12 miles from Glasgow City Centre, Westerwood has been carefully designed (by Seve Ballesteros and Dave Thomas) to merge into the landscape. The resident professional and the Scottish National Golf Centre team are on hand to provide expert tuition and assist in the organisation of corporate golf events, which are a speciality. Without doubt the most spectacular hole must be the 15th, aptly named the Waterfall which is set against a 40 foot rock face.
Clober, although a short course, requires skill in chipping to play it well with eight par-3s. The signature hole is a par 3 with out of bounds both left and right and a burn flowing in front of the tee.
18 holes, 6040 yards, par 70
The Virgin Active Dougalston Golf Course, just ten minutes from Glasgow, is an ultimate golfing challenge that awaits you. The former Esporta Golf Course has a country club setting which is set within the heart of 300 acres of beautiful woodland.
Stirling Golf Club lies on a tilted slab of ancient volcanic lava in full view of historic Stirling Castle. Once a favoured hunting ground of Scottish monarchs, this ground has been known for centuries as the Kings Park. The course was redesigned by the great Henry Cotton in 1966 and offers some of the finest views in Scotland, covering the Forth Valley and the local mountains of the Trossachs, a national park. The magnificent Stirling Castle dominates the whole scene.
9 holes, 6014 yards, par 68
The golf course is a challenging par 68 for men and an equally challenging par 71 for ladies. The course plays as a nine hole layout but has 16 different greens. This makes the course ideal for people who only want to play 9 holes, but at the same time does not take away from the difficulty of the course for those out for 18. The club has a deserved reputation for friendliness and informality.
Helensburgh Golf Club was founded in August 1893 with an original layout that was approved by Old Tom Morris, and extended in 1905 to 18 holes. James Braid visited Helensburgh in the 1920's setting out several bunkers, which still catch out the golfers of today.
18 holes, 4896 yards, par 68
9 holes, 2448 yards, par 34

The Vale of Leven Golf Club was formed in 1907 and the course is situated on the east side of the valley overlooking the surrounding area with some tremendous views of Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond. From the highest point of the course the view extends as far as Dumbarton Rock and the Clyde estuary..
Nestled alongside the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond is a parkland treasure that has come to be known as Loch Lomond Golf Club. A private club for the exclusive use of its members and their guests, Loch Lomond sits on the historic Clan Colquhoun estate, which is steeped in Scottish tradition dating back to the 12th century. As Scotland is known as the birthplace of golf, Loch Lomond enjoys the history and tradition associated with golf in the homeland, yet the Club provides an experience uniquely its own.
